Chocolate Truffles

Thursday, 23 December 2010

Just about more than anything else, I love to cook. So I figured why not combine my love of KDHX and music with my other passion? I promise a regular posting of various kinds of recipes.

You still have plenty of time to make a delicious, simple, but fancy-looking homemade gift in the form of chocolate truffles.

Chocolate Truffles

12 oz. semisweet chocolate (in the form of chips or bar or whatever you choose)

1 can of sweetened evaporated milk (Eagle Brand)

For rolling the truffles:

Powdered sugar, colored sugars, cocoa, finely chopped nuts, finely chopped coconut, etc., each in a small, shallow bowl or container.

Over a double boiler (or in a heavy pot over a very low heat) mix the chocolate and milk until combined and completely melted, stirring frequently.

Once melted, cover the pot and place in the refrigerator to cool/harden. Once the mixture is completely cool, use a teaspoon to scoop out a mound of chocolate. Here's where things get a little messy...shape the chocolate into balls (I do it between my palms) and then roll each ball into the coating of your choice.

A bunch of these in a cute gift box, or tied with a pretty ribbon in a cello bag makes a delicious handmade gift. They also look great dotting a cookie tray.
